Book Club?

I think my ward is starting a book group again. They are going to read The Five Love Languages which I "read" on tape a couple years ago. I should actually read it. All I've read lately are self-help type books like that though, mostly on parenting. I read two whole books on cessareans while I was pregnant, I've read most of Baby Wise and Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child and an entire book on pregnancy. I've browsed books on child development, games for infants, etc. I finally finished a novel I started in October. I am ready to read fiction again.




I think I will begin this evening by continuing The Westing Game, a young adult novel I began with my students in mind. What shall I read next?
I just went thru the books on my shelves (didn't dig thru my boxes or go to the library or buy anything new). The ones that appeal most to me at the moment (that I've never read) are: Cold Mountain (B read it 6 years ago and dubbed it a Modern Classic, says our kids will be reading it in high school AND that it will make me cry), The Odyssey, The Brothers Karamazov, Life of Pi, and I'm sure I've got a copy of The Grapes of Wrath somewhere. Which do you all suggest I read first? Anyone want to read with me?

The Life of Pi sounds interesting...and yes I will read with you. I currently am reading "Great Expectations". My goal is to read all of the books on the Classic AP Literature list as well as the Modern list before I die...

I'm currently reading The Grapes of Wrath. It's going really slow for me, but I'm enjoying it so far.
